They are known by most as the best team in the region, securing an 8th place finish at TI9 under the name "Infamous". This roster was acquired by Beastcoast as they made a bid at a TI10 win during the 2020 season. To provide some insight on how important is this partnership for us we have a word from Ramón ''Swadow'' López, Rivalry's Regional Latam Lead:
'"Since the first moment we have been following the path of the anvorguesa (as they were well known before). Clients and fans around the world have always shown exceptional interest on the team that is representing our community to the world and its our company philosophy to support this kind of initiatives. We work with the most important talent of the region, studios, casters and personalities such us Pio, 4D, Khael, Dj, Raizon, Sideral... It was just natural for us to support Beastcoast in this awesome ride while they represent their region in the biggest Dota 2 events of the world."
This partnership will be very positive for the team's fans. We will be bringing quite exclusive content with the goal of showing everyone around the globe aspects of what the SA Dota scene is made of. I think world-wide people have yet to know how much passion there is for this game here and we will be here tho show that, with other events and activation we will be announcing during the year. I can assure you this will be super fun."
Beastcoast we will be starting their bid towards TI10 with a match against Chaos to kick off their run in the Dreamleauge Major.
